HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Las Vegas quarterback Derek Carr said Henry Ruggs III needs to be loved right now and needs to know he has people in his corner.

Raiders interim coach Rich Bisaccia said it’s important to keep the focus on the fact 23-year-old Tina O. Tintor was killed Tuesday morning in a fiery crash caused by Ruggs, the 22-year-old receiver who was cut by the team Tuesday night.

Prosecutors said Ruggs was driving at 156 mph with a blood-alcohol content twice Nevada’s legal limit before his Chevrolet Corvette slammed into the rear of Tintor’s vehicle that burned, killing her.

Ruggs and passenger Kiara Je’nai Kilgo-Washington were injured.
